This year's BET Awards did the thing! The performances from Rap to Reggae/Dancehall had the social media sites on fire with updates coming in by the nanoseconds! Thanks to me blog hopping, I discovered BET released clips of last night performances!
"My Love Is All I Have" crooner Mr. Charlie last name Willson was this years BET 2013 Cadillac Lifetime Achievement Award recipient. I am excited that Charlie Wilson received this award! Uncle Charlie shows us how over thirty years and counting is done by providing great music and collaborations with hip-hop artists! India Arie, Jamie Foxx and legendary Stevie Wonder sung a few of Charlie Wilson timeless songs! Afterwards, Charlie also performed some of his new and old hits and was joined by Snoop Lion, Pharrell Williams and Justin Timberlake with a "must see" performance that had the crowd going off! I have to give it to Uncle Charlie, you can tell he was it was his moment to shine "brighter"!
Check out part one and two of the Uncle Charlie tribute and more..

R.Kelly also had the crowd going off with his timeless songs, with the help of a choir!
We cannot forget the reggae and dancehall portion! Thanks to Dawn Penn, Chaka Demus and the Pliers (they did not age), the "Energy God" Elephant Man and Beenie Man performed there greatest hits!
